North America get Muse to tour with U2 and what do we get? Republic of fuppin' Loose! Er, hem, I mean... Dublin's favourite purveyors of funk will open for U2 on their second night in Croke park this summer, Saturday July 25th.

As previously annouce, Kaiser Chiefs are the main support act for the Saturday night, while if you were lucky enough to get tickets for the Friday you'll get to see Glaswegian rockers Glasvegas. No word yet on support for the 3rd gig on Monday 27th, but let's face it, you probably won't get tickets anyway when they go on sale next Wednesday April 1st at 8am.
